We have adaptive technology—track ball mice and LP keyboards now available in the PCC. We also have a new magnification station on the 2nd floor that allows customers to magnify reading materials to be large enough to allow ease in reading books, magazines, newspapers, letters, any printed materials.
Library customers are welcome to stop by the 2nd floor and try out any of our new adaptive technology equipment. Staff would be happy to give some one-on-one tutor time in the use of any of the new equipment as well.
